Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Not sure about that one, but looking over his website he has some very nice frames. Love the one with matching TX badge, TT protector and lugs

It's always bothered me to see nice frames set directly on brick/concrete/asphalt/other hard scratchy surfaces.

this was posted a few weeks ago...dude who builds them came on to discuss. nice guy.

as before; dude builds some really nice frames, but i'm not a fan of the seat stays.
i also cant stand GT frames, so i guess it's a chronic issue with me.

That frame is his personal frame. most of them dont have the crossed seat stays. I met him in austin a while back and he is a really nice guy and his work is very very nice up close. I also talked to a messenger who uses one as his daily ride and says he loves it a whole lot.

That bike has been one of the bikes that rotate as my background for awhile now. Chrome lugs=pure, unadulterated sex.

If I had a million dollars, a black bike with chrome lugs would be my first purchase.

How about a K-Car with 20" rims and one of those jeweled crown air fresheners in the rear window?

I hope Whit doest get pissed at me for posting this link cause he said he was a little embarrassed watching it but I just think he is just modest. It is a rad look into what he is doing.

http://www.austinfitmagazine.com/

its on the right side down towards the bottom, 3rd video down i think.

Whit is a stand up guy, and his frames are beautiful.

REALLY? You can get whatever you want (except probably some other brand) on the headtube of a Jonny, but I think he polished SS star is classy.
